Manhattan private school reportedly showed first graders sex-ed cartoon
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and ‘Outnumbered’ co-host Kayleigh McEnany react on ‘Hannity’
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee sounded off Tuesday on “Hannity” after parents came forward to the New York Post to report that one of New York City’s most expensive private schools taught sex-ed to their first graders using a cartoon video where little kids discussed “touching themselves” for pleasure.
First graders at the Dalton School, a $55,000-per-year private institution in Upper Manhattan’s posh Yorkville neighborhood, reportedly showed six-year-olds a video in which cartoon children and their instructor engaged in a Q&A about various sexual organs and solo sex acts.
At one point, the instructor tells the children to refer to their private parts by their scientific names rather than nicknames used in public discourse, before the young boy in the video asks the instructor why he sometimes feels like pleasuring himself.
Host Sean Hannity told Huckabee the leader of the effort to “sexualize” children in this way is Justine Ang-Fonte, a health educator who on her website lauded social justice and referred to her hometowns based on the Native American tribes that used to reside there. Hannity added he reached out for comment but never received a response from Ang-Fonte.
“It would be bad enough if it was in public school — but the fact that people are paying $55,000 a year for their kids to be subjected to this stuff?” lamented Huckabee.
“First of all, pull your kids. Secondly, yank the money out of this school. And third, don’t put up with it.”
Huckabee called upon his history as a Baptist minister, telling Hannity that St. Paul the Apostle had choice words for people and institutions that do these things.
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” he quoted.
“You have people pretending to know something, pretending to be intellectual. This is not intellectualism. This is a fool’s errand and it’s embarrassing and disgusting.”
Echoing Huckabee’s remarks, former Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Dalton School’s curriculum “totally inappropriate.”
She said that she and her husband, former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Sean Gilmartin, try their best to screen and guard anything their 1-year-old child watches.
“We have to screen the cartoons these days because we don’t know what Hollywood is putting together. Never in a million years would you think you would need to screen your private school for a video like this as the governor points out, you’re paying $55,000 a year,” she said. “This is totally inappropriate but it’s part of the trend.”
